Researchers Develop Method To Trigger Growth Of New Hair

Current methods for treating baldness do not stimulate the growth of new hair. Hair transplants simply take hair from one part of the head and put it in another place. Investigators “took papilla stem cells from seven men who were undergoing hair transplants, cultured them and then injected them into human skin grafted onto mice.” The researchers found that “new hair follicles grew in five of the seven grafts.” DNA analysis confirmed that the new hair follicles genetically matched the human donors. This discovery takes a huge leap forward in the potential for developing new drugs to treat hair loss.
